  • Description

    Hi my name is Jake! I am 24 and I am following my dreams of backpacking Asia, I think there is so much more to life than working the rat race 9-to-5 to pay bills and to not be truly happy, I think people should follow their dreams and passions always! I would really like to help out some hosts in order to meet some great people, share some positive vibes, experience new things and lengthen my journey across Asia! I have knowledge in building work, I am artistic, musical, charismatic and social, but most of all I am very open minded and absolutely thrive off meeting new people and learning new things!

  • What else ...

    I am really looking forward to experiencing different cultures and meeting different people. I am really happy to be getting out of the mainstream status quo and seeing how other people live. Some interesting things about me would include the fact that a passion of mine is beatboxing (vocal percussion), I am in love with science and philosophy and the mysteries of mother nature and the universe make me very happy. I have also done working visits before in buddist temples and with a host family in Spain. These experiences opened my mind to a new way of life and a different perspective on the world. I am a very friendly, helpful, and comical person. I really want to be spread and be share positive energy.I am very excited to meet my next host, whoever it may be I am sure we will be great friends. :-)
